Last week’s contest was won by wes.in.wa. It was the ferry landing in the Lummi Reservation.

This week’s contest is related to something in news from March. Good luck!

Pre-WWII neighborhood, where ever it is.

2. Liberal Scientist spews:

Looks a lot like St. Louis (in the burbs of which I grew up), or other old, industrial midwest city

3. dan robinson spews:

Detroit emptying out? Nah, that is too general.

4. wes.in.wa spews:

Fascinating false-front flat-roofed houses. Brick alleyways. Hmm.

5. wes.in.wa spews:

@2 – looking up brick alleys, that’s where Google sends me.

@6

Like this?
North St. Louis (where the O’Fallon neighborhood is) was exactly what I was thinking.
Now, what happened in St. Louis this week?

7. wes.in.wa spews:

Shootout in 3100 block of Osage St., St. Louis MO. Bing image HERE. (Oddly, most of the birdseyes of this spot are much barer & browner.)
Story HERE.

8. Liberal Scientist spews:

OOPS!
I was looking in the wrong end of town!
DOH.
Guess I gotta go home and visit more often!
I was looking around at the shooting that was on the 5300 block of Maffit, in the north end.

9. Lee spews:

@7
That’s it!

10. What rubbish spews:

People on this site can locate a picture of obscure places in less than 4 hours.

Why on earth aren’t these skills in demand in the dream world of the “intelligence” agencies?”

Too efficient, probably.
